Latest Ratings

How to $lurp

Rate any hashtag or link with a $lurp rating from 1 to 5 stars, i.e. $+ to $+++++

You can also use special rating keywords, such as $like or $dislike

Rating will apply to all tags or links in your post.

Games can be rated multiple times, everything else takes your latest rating as your score.

What's coming

We will chart how much you like a game over time, and represent this with a graph (we are already tracking this with the $lurp ratings)

Mentions - where you will be able to @mention people and find posts where you are mentioned.

Threads - where you will be able to reply to a post thus turning it into a thread.

Follow people. As we're all mates for now, we don't need this just yet.

Easy searching of tags. Again, not needed yet but on the plans.

Publication scores - we're tracking how you rate articles, and your ratings also get applied to the article's website. At some point we'll show how liked/disliked each publication is.

Some other cool things too! ;-)

Can I cheat?

No :p

There's no point in spamming ratings, as you only get one rating per tag (unless it's a game). So only your latest rating to a tag will apply. If you change your mind and want to re-rate something, that's fine, but repeated dislikes (or likes!) won't work as your vote will only count once towards the final.

When it comes to games, you can rate them as often as you want, but only your average rating is submitted to the game's page - so again spamming won't have any effect. Rate games when and as you feel like it, as we will show how you liked a game over time. This is not just great for us seeing what our friends think of games, but handy for developers too - peaks and dips may help them see which bits of their games were liked... and which not so much.

I have I think 2 extra Europe PS4 codes as well, if anyone needs. Not had a chance to play it yet, sounds like I'm in for a treat!

Destiny Beta I have 1 or 2 extra PS4 Americas beta codes if anyone wants one. Unfortunately they are locked to region and console. I played about 8 hours yesterday and really got into it.

Still see the odd bit around. But seems a lot of it comes from the press now, and admissions by companies of "console parity" All daft nonsense to me, I have both of em and enjoy games on both and if you are a fan of video games then you like games not a format they are delivered on. Now pc elitist people irritate me! If you are so concerned with your ultra setting and antialiasing bull then to me you are missing the point.... It's about playing the game not tweaking the in game menu!

@Azz It's set for b/g/n and always been a bit poor the connection here. Quite far from the exchange, when was on normal broadband which was upto 6mb was running under 1mb. Took no end of engineer visits and phone calls to get something done and get a socket thingy to reduce interference. No virgin cable here so the only option is via bt.

Negative fanboyism! Anyone remember that? LOL img.photobucket.com.. It's funny that, even though the PS4 is significantly 'better', PS4 owners don't seem to be trashing the XB1 as what happened with the PS4 and 360 (even tho the PS3 was more powerful!). Funny huh?

@stanokella You must be on their 40Mbps package then Ste? Your wired connection will be a good indicator of your actual speeds - as wireless could be slower depending on several factors. Hold down the alt key and click on the wireless icon in the menu bar at the top - then click on wireless diagnostics, but when it opens go to the menu at the top > window > utilities > wifi scan Under protocol, make sure 'n' is in there, as some routers turn it off, or it gets turned off by their crafty options (like on sky, all their options are for 'g', and the only one that uses 'n' is 'auto'). You can also look at other things like performance as well. If your package is meant to be higher (like 80Mbps) then call them - as they often cap connections!!

I'm on BT infinity, best have got is around 35meg down and 7 up. Generally runs around 25meg down and 6 up. That's woreless according to the speed tester. My XBone seems to think things are rosier at 40meg down with that being wired.

Used to love arcades, didn't get in em much generally in a family trip to Blackpool when I was younger! Was always drawn to asteroids and remember fondly being amazed by the graphics!!!

Arcades - Do you remember them? I do! Some of my favourite gaming moments were in the arcades - probably the Killer Instinct, Mortal Kombat and Sega Racing Classic days. I also enjoyed our days in another arcade while in school, playing Shinobi and 1942 lol What were your faves? BBC News - Video-game revival:..

I really liked it. I played as a Titan and really like it most of the time. There were a few enemies in a cave that only took -1 damage from my current weapon which seemed odd but I haven't really played many RPG's so I guess I need to learn more about character upgrading. I have it pre-ordered but I don't know where my receipt with the beta code is so I guess I need to go in and re-order it to get a new beta code.

@jotch I had a couple of hours on it, was a little unsure about it prior to playing it. Not a big RPG fan, enjoyed quite a bit. Didn't have a clue want was going on at times and the hub area was a little confusing at times. The campaign bit was challenging, spent 10 mins shooting at some tank thing slowly chipping its health away whilst dying periodically! Hit the crucible for some multiplayer and got smashed a lot by one shot weapons, which seemed a little unbalanced to my little assault rifle. Managed a few kills and not everyone was relying on big ass guns! It was gorgeous looking, especially as it is just an alpha build. So it's now on preorder with some optimism for the full game.

So what did people think of the #Destiny Alpha? I played for about an hour last night and was really pleasantly surprised, it has loads going for it...particular highlights for me were the RPG elements, visuals and balanced controls. After the announcement I wasn't overly keen but after playing it I'm in. Anyone else get in on the Alpha action?

I like the look of the gameplay, just hope it's not another watchdogs where the quality drops from the "in game" footage released early. Plenty coming this year though, currently I have UFC, Sniper Elite, COD, The Last Of Us Re-do and BF Hardline on pre orders!

@Azz I thought that was really cool...it almost looks like that could be in-game for the new generation consoles. Worst trailer?? Perhaps I didn't watch the same thing.
